Thanks from WWEPW

My head is sort of swimming this week, ever since Go Fug Yourself mentioned WWEPW.

Regular WWEPWer Emma, who writes the blog Gleeklopedia, was featured on FOX Chicago News this week! I was so impressed with her on-screen poise - are you sure you're in high school, Emma? Thank you so much for mentioning WWEPW in your interview! Take a look:

Earlier this week, I got the loveliest email from Destri, founder and editor of a really great site called The Mother Huddle.

I adore blogs like this. Communities of people with a common interest, supporting one another and sharing ideas. Fabulous. Destri asked me if I would contribute an entry to her Bullet List feature, and I was honored to oblige! Visit Destri's site where you'll find my list of Ten Things We Can Learn From Emma Pillsbury, and so much more. Thanks, Destri!

Blogger Lindsey Reiser from Chicago Now mentioned WWEPW and shares her picks for some great Emma-worthy vintage finds on Etsy in this article: Get Emma Pillsbury's Glee-ful vintage look. Thanks, Lindsey!

Stats trackers are a glorious thing. From another linkback to WWEPW, I discovered this marvelous site: Aiming Low. Their description: "We are a group of women/moms/bloggers/friends/writers that believe that there’s no shame in serving mac and cheese for dinner three nights in a row, Febreeze was created to make a questionably clean shirt smell ready-to-walk-out-the-door-fresh and that slack isn’t a way of life…it’s an art." Brilliant, right? Smart girls FTW!

I'd forgotten to link this article when it was published, but better late than never! Kate Youde from The Independent interviewed me for this piece...alas, all my babbling didn't make the final cut, but she did mention WWEPW. Good stuff in here from Lou Eyrich. It's Chic to be a Gleek: Why everybody wants to join the Glee club circuit Thanks for a great chat and a great article, Kate!

Another cool mention by Kitty Felde from Southern California Public Radio and an older one from Metro News Canada by Rea McNamara. One more mention from's Stefanie Lee.

One more shoutout to the fabulous Tim & (My Mom Calls Me) George from KISS107 in Cincinnati. They aired my interview with them on Tuesday morning and through the magic of radio, I didn't sound like a yammering fool. These guys are a ton of fun and I appreciate them taking the time to chat with me about Glee and Emma's fashion!

And before I forget! I've launched a new site, which is still very much in its infancy, but a TON of fun to work on, thanks to some really amazing people. Check it out! What Would Glee Wear?

Oy, before this post comes across like a bunch of egomaniacal horn-tooting, here's my point. It's important to say thank you. I really can't tell you how awesome it is to know so many people enjoy reading WWEPW. I've been leaving comments all over the blogosphere, thanking anyone I find who has a kind word or two to say about this site. For me, that's what this whole blogging thing is about. Connecting with people. Go visit one of your favorite blogs, maybe one where you just lurk, and leave a comment. I guarantee you'll put a smile on that blogger's face.

It can't be said enough. Thank you.

I'm mostly a "lurker" (so hate that term!) but am trying to get some style back in my life after falling into the "mom trap". I love your blog and have been following many of the links to others you post. Your hard work and dedication is very much appreciated! Keep up the great work!

SOOOO EXCITED FOR YOU DANIELLE!!! Every time I see WWEPW's follower count go up I think "YAY GLEE! GLEE KIDS HOORAY!" in your honor! :P

Thank YOU!

goldenmeans said...

Yay, congrats for all the major mentions Danielle! I myself try to force as many people over to your site as possible and several friends and readers have told me how they are now hooked! =)

I didn't know about the What Would Glee Wear side project! It looks awesome and is now a new bookmark. I'm obsessed with pretty much all the female characters' wardrobes on Glee, so yay :)

Jesslyn said...

It's a fun, HAPPY blog, which I think is the real root of your success. :)

Danielle said...

Aw, thanks everyone!

@Maryam - YAY! I didn't realize that was you! How cool!

@Jesslyn - :) I'm a happy person, so I'm glad that comes across in the blog! :)

Eliz said...

Obviously the world is becoming aware of what we already know: you're awesome.

Congratulations on everything; so exciting!

Sarahnargle said...

I'm so excited for What Would Glee Wear?! Thanks for being so extremely awesome, and congratulations on everything, it is very well deserved. :)

Thank YOU Danielle! Glee is enjoyable but this blog makes it that much more wonderful! I enjoy reading it everyday and hunting down Emma looks. Keep up the good work!!

Emma said...

Thanks for posting my interview! And congrats on all the other recognition!

Heather said...

I'd like to say "YAY" for Emma as what Danielle said is SO TRUE - you came across as poised, elegant and most of all - eloquent.

As a high school student today it is so easy for people to assume that you're either ignorant or apathetic, and you proved both stereotypes wrong. Go, you! :)

Congratulations!! You do a really great job and the website is awesome :)
